had a bona fide job where he's been there for a period of time. >> reporter: which led to an obvious question. what kind of job had harvey been doing managing steven's inheritance? sylvia nolan remembered shortly before steven vanished, somebody broke into the trunk of steven's car where he kept all of his personal paperwork, passport, trust documents, all stolen. >> and i said, please tell me the document between you and harvey wasn't in there. and he goes, what document? and i said, well, you know, for him investing your $2 million. i said you have something documented, right? and he goes, no. and i said, you gave some man you just met a couple years ago $2 million and you've got nothing in writing? >> reporter: she told the detectives, of course. and they took a good look at harvey's boat and soon learned something that probably should have been obvious all along. that fancy dolled-up tub with its pricey power winches, expensive electronics, teak, washer/dryer, fireplace, was paid for, practically every dollar, by the unwitting steven b. that answer turned up in meticulous detail in harvey's own ship's ledger. >> he put, according to his own ledger, $1.7 million to that yacht. so almost the whole amount he took from steven went right back into the yacht. >> reporter: no wonder, said steven's friend sylvia, no wonder the last time they went out to lunch, she had to pick up the check.
